Chocolate-Covered Strawberries is the perfect recipe to make with kids or to surprise last-minute guests.

The ingredients you use is what makes a simple strawberries dessert become an exotic splendour strawberries dessert.
We recommend you to use our 80% Dark Chocolate and pick up some ripe strawberries for a better contrast of flavours.
The key to having a perfect coverage is to make sure the strawberry is very dry. If the strawberry has any water from rinsing or any sticky areas the chocolate won’t stick to the fruit.
After rinsing the strawberries use a clean towel to pat them until they are completely dry.
